I wish he'd release his new songs on iTunes here in the US. I'm all for physical CDs but also like to download songs so I can listen to them right away. Would love to hear the remixes!

Whatever happened to that good ol' tradition of having an extra song as a b-side? That's something I really miss.

I'd be more psyched if it had a proper b-side, but it's a step in the right direction to have a CD release with remixes.

Cool - i knew that Purple Rain font was some fans photoshop work.

Too bad it doesnt come with a real b-side but mixes are nice. However not a huge fan of this guy that also did the Dance4Me remixes...they're pretty dull

Like I have said before,

this song from Prince is c-r-a-p.

(I might buy the cd, but then for the collector's reasons only).

indeed, a non album bside plus a 12" version of the a side would have been cool.

you know, like the singles he used to release and which we snapped up, eagerly cool

i'll probably pick up a copy though, since it will be available over here and it will

be nice to hold a physical prince release for the first time since 20Ten, i guess.

so this is the last single part of the purple music deal? remember reading a while

back he had signed a deal for 3 releases.

first was Dance 4 me

then bria valente's song

now this

Maybe he's putting this out to complete the deal? Or maybe it could be included in a soon to come album.. Whatever the case is, glad we won't get more songs remixed by Lewis after this.

It's funny how people can say this man's career is over and he still sell out shows like pancakes getting sold at a local IHOP. The song is not great but it's ten times better then the shit that is playing on the radio these days. Prince's career is not over I would love for him to go back to the old raunchy Prince but it's not gonna happen. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but he is a different man and either you accept it or you don't because at the end of the day while a number of you who makes these absurd comments about Prince's career going down the toilet... He is still gonna create music while you're making the donuts at your local Dunkin Donuts or ringing up someone's grocery's at your local Whole Foods. Stop with the negativity it's been and has been getting tired

Any word on a digital download release? Realized quite some time ago that I don't need a physical copy of a single with a bunch of remixes that I'll never listen to. In it for the radio and extended mixes, and I probably haven't even popped a cd in in about 6 years other than to rip it to iTunes. Singles are clutter.

I don't really get his persistence in putting out physcical copies without making a digital version available, it's only costing him more $ in the long run. I guess he's as nostalgic as some of his fans. But really, if he wants to make $, he needs to put it out in a digital format, it just doesn't make any sense not too. It would be better if he puts it out than let the bottleggers do it, he'll only make $ one way.

Kudos to Prince though for the release. I'm surprised though that he's putting so much effort into a somewhat mediocre (mediocre for Prince) song. I like the song, but I'm not blown away by it.

Ever since the first Purple Music release I feel the urge to stalk and maim Jamie Lewis. Everything that is shit about electronica is wrapped within that man. To think that he shares the same genre as DJ Shadow. It's like going to play classic Stevie Wonder and hearing the Spice Girls.

Jamie if you're reading this, do us and the world a favour. Jump from a bridge or go back to whatever it was you were doing before someone showed you a set of decks. And never, ever touch a Prince record again. You are a shame, on a cellular level, to the music that he has created.

I guess not. I just don't really care about cd's anymore. They scratch too easy & they're way overpriced. They're very much outdated in my opinion. I'm not fixated on that level of sound quality. The song is either good or it isn't. No matter the sound quality, you can't poilish a terd.

Since Rock and Roll Love Affair is to be released on Thursday, does that mean we can expect to see the video out that day too? Perhaps even a preview in the next few days from Dr Funk or even Andy, or would that be too confusing with her album also being released at that time??

p.s LOVE the vinyl pic!!!

I dont know why people on this site are so ready to give his majesty so much stick everytime he releases something new or slightly different.Rock N Roll love Affair grew on me after a few listens and count me in for a pre-order for it's 22nd november release with all the mixes.i'm only annoyed that i can't get an MP3 or M4A download or better still an entire album bolted onto the song instead of just a load of remixes.I hate house music and wish there was a techno version but thats my only critisicms.Why a physical format only anyway???people can still convert it into mp3's and pass it around torrents anyway.you have to compete with those dishonest or you will make no money.the old ways of releasing music are just that...OLD.

See, told you Radio 2 would play it. The station for old fuckers like me. It's a middle of the road AOR song for middle of the road AOR people. Radio 2 is not young, is not fashionable and does not play anything that courts any controversy or challenges in any way. I knew from the start that this would be the perfect station for Love Affair. Day time listening of course. It's the kind of song my mum would hum. She's seventy.

Yes, I know, I have just ordered from HMV who are saelling it at £15.00 with free postage, they also have the CD for £10.00.

However, I have been here before only for singles to be cancelled on release dates.

I suppose this pricing means we don't have to speculate about a chart placing.

Yep, it's just about the story. He's just announcing he finally settled down and married somebody normal. It's good for him, and good to see he touched down to earth, but with him touching down the earth, I guess the distant magic disappeared. In other words this is what stars collide.

I hope he'll continue making good music, cause for now Prince may have found peace but he is finally over as well. I know he doesn't care, and if he doesn't why would anybody care?

Well, whatever Prince has gone through in his personal life, I can't say it's helped his output. This is one of the most tragically boring, forgettable songs I have ever heard from him. The trajectory for Prince has gone from groundbreaking and amazing in the 80's to increasingly offensively bad in the 90's to increasingly dull in the 00's. This song is a continuation of that, sadly. Each time I listen to it, I immediately forget it ten seconds after it's over. How sad is it that when you hear a new Prince album these days, you find yourself bored immediately afterward and asking when the next album will be out? The genius has left the building, and he doesn't seem to be coming back.

The world is a comedy for those who think and a tragedy for those who feel.

"Rich Friends", "Cause And Effect", "Purple and Gold", "Everybody Loves Me" are all worse songs than Rock N Roll Love Affair. Rock N Roll Love Affair has musicality, which is something the aforementioned songs lacked. What is overlooked about the new song is that Prince is using a more restrained voice. It's good not to hear him sing in falsetto or use stale drum machine beats that are dated. The music is midwestern and the music is him going to back to his roots. The sound is not that far removed from DIRTY MIND as far as the timbre of the music itself. I liked the analog sound of the drums, electric bass, synths and horn backgrounds.

What the song is lacking is any kind of personality. It's the kind of song an old band of grandfathers would perform at a wedding. The song is so dull, it's impossible for me to even hate it. It's so restrained that there is just nothing here.

The last Prince song that sounded interesting was Future Soul Song, but IIRC that was written during the Emancipation era.

Restrained is the right word. I wouldn't liken it to a grandpa song because those songs have hooks and choruses. Prince knows what a chorus is, for some reason he didn't use one here. This song will never be my favorite, but I agree with you that there's nothing to hate. And, in fact, I think I could even like it.

Also, people keep saying that the song is about the story? Okay, that's fine, but in that case you need especially good lyrics. The Ballad of Dorothy Parker is more about the story than the music, but it has some of his subtlest, most likeable and deceptively simple lyrics.

What depth is there here?

this kind of love don't come from a prayer

ain't talking rebound, born of despair

yellow sun rising on their bodies in bed

two people in love with nothing but the road ahead

These lyrics typify today's Prince and the simplistic turn he made after TRC. Gone are the double entendres, puzzling metaphors, or any trace of subtext found in his stronger, cleverer work. These lyrics lack all subtlety; the extent of their depth is so limited, you extract all there is the first time 'round. The meaning is simply what it appears to be; nothing more.

Compare that with Dorothy Parker:

Well, I ordered, "Yeah, let me get a fruit cocktail, I ain't too hungry" Dorothy laughed She said, "Sound like a real man to me You kinda cute, you wanna take a bath? Do you wanna, do you wanna? Bath"
I said, "Cool, I'm leavin' my pants on", "What you say?" "'Cuz I'm kinda goin' with someone" She said, "Sound like a real man to me
The juxtaposition of mockery in the original remark of "Sound like a real man to me" with the turn toward sincerity in its repetition is the kind of depth Prince used to be great at conveying.

I think his story/lyrics in "Long Gone" (Andy Allo's song that he wrote) has more depth. There you can see that he is still capable of depth in his lyrics. I also think "Elixir" (Bria Valente's song that he wrote) has that sexual storytelling, double entendres and metaphors from days of yore.

For some reason, he gives some of his strongest material to the weakest performers instead of doing them himself nowadays.

I still check in on Prince everyonce in a while, and I'll admit I'm not always pleased, but I'm forever indebted to him for introducing me to various types of different music , especially Orchestral music through Claire Fischer. As for the song-meh. But sometimes Prince surprises me. When I'm not looking forward to something I'm PLEASEANTLY surprised by an album and sometimes when I am looking forward to an album I'm dissapointed. And time seems to change my judgement. I loved Diamnonds & Pearls when it came out, but after a couple of years I couldn't be bothered. But I say each to his own. If you like it rock out. If you don't turn it off. C'mon, do you really think Prince cares what we think anyways? Besides, and I know we are not supposed to discuss this type of thing here, but I have...aquired music from "The Vault" and I think he's still sitting on some great stuff. We'll see if it sees the light of day. My friends think he's waiting untill the day when he's physically unable to produce music anymore. Wouldn't it be like Prince to do that? Noone would really care if it was old stuff and it would be Prince's way of saying SUCK ON THIS!lol

They still have it, however importcds is out of stock. Amazon has a few for sale, so does ebay, but the ones on ebay are overpriced then @purplemusic.ch. Shipping is expensive, but you can cut this down by ordering more products (same cost though). They also have dance 4 me remixes, but you have to search around in order to find it.

Mine Shipped from Amazon.. from seller "marvelio"..

$12.01 with shipping, I'm in the US.. so the price isn't too steep, the song, I'm starting to grow an attachment to, but I did hear the samples of the remix and not a fan of them, then again I wasn't a fan of the "Dance 4 Me" remixes either and I actually love the original version of that song. Hopefully I will physically have it in a few days.

Are the tracklistings the same for the 12" and picture disc.. not that it matters, since I dont have a record player.. but I Do see that you can buy the song and remixes in digital form from the site.

With reminds me, with Superconductor.. I bought digitally from Amazon when it came out.. and then when buying RRLA.. I saw Superconductor available on physical CD so I bought it not even thinking i got sold Twice on the album, but I dont care.. I really like Allo's CD.. and since I was on a spree, I added Larry Graham's new one to the cart and I was able to hear that one on Spotify and enjoyed it.. so.. should be an interesting visit from Fedex in a few days. It sure isn't like the good old days when we knew weeks ahead WHAT day a CD would be in a store.. Go to the store and its THERE (or call ahead and pre-order it) and bring it home.. I sure miss that part of buying a new CD.

And has anyone bought fDeluxe new release "Relit"... Wish I could sample that before buying.. I like Gaslight, but I'm not understanding Paul Peterson's fascination with the 100 different remixes, its like he's not happy with any of the original versions or something.

Anyhoo, now I've re-connected with the Org, I now know its been in the public domain since the 22nd November. I have just purchased through HMV the CD single, 12" PD and 12" vinyl Single and am a proud £37.00 lighter! Ouch!

Still, for what its worth i really love the song. Happy to add it to my collection.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
